Rosser Celebrates the Delta Flight Museum

Rosser International, Inc. is pleased to announce our new sponsorship of the Delta Flight Museum, a non-profit organization designed to explore aviation history, celebrate the story and people of Delta Air Lines, and discover the future of flight. “Rosser is excited to bolster the Delta Flight Museum in its newest phase,” said Rosser’s President, Eric Robinson. “We are pleased to be part of this inspiring organization dedicated to educating the community about the history of the aviation industry, Delta’s role in the industry and the vast potential of the future of flight.”

This sponsorship celebrates Rosser’s long-standing relationship with Delta Air Lines, Inc., comprising over 30 years of comprehensive planning, architectural and engineering services resulting in more than 130 completed projects. Rosser’s planning and design services helped Delta renovate dozens of hangars and maintenance facilities, upgrade concourses, provide simulator training facilities, establish and implement master plans, create parking decks, and plan and develop operation centers.

A highlight of Rosser’s work with Delta is the Delta Paint and Strip facility, winner of both the Consulting Engineers of America national and Georgia Chapter awards. This free-standing paint facility is capable of refinishing three aircraft simultaneously, as well as stripping and painting 200 aircraft annually. A specially designed ventilation system provides a safe internal environment and meets the external air emission requirements of the EPA.

Located in the heart of Delta’s headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, the Delta Flight Museum was constructed in the company’s original 1940s-era aircraft hangars. The museum recently underwent a renovation that expanded its facilities to include a 117-seat welcome theater, unique conference room located inside the fuselage of an L-1011 TriStar aircraft, and enhanced exhibits. Delta Flight Museum President John Boatright acknowledged Rosser’s support saying that “Sponsorships like Rosser’s allow the Delta Flight Museum to share with the public vibrant stories of aviation and the role Delta and its employees have played in Atlanta’s position as one of the busiest travel hubs in the world. We’re thrilled that Rosser will contribute to our museum’s future.”
